Minimising ventilator-induced lung injury today and tomorrow

Chairs: M. Witzenrath (Berlin, Germany), W. Kubler (Toronto, Canada)
Aims: State-of-the-art clinical strategies for protective ventilation and use of extracorporeal lung-assist devices will be reviewed. Moreover, the audience will gain insight into the latest scientific achievements regarding lung mechanics and pathophysiological mechanisms accounting for ventilator-induced lung injury. Adjunctive (e.g. current and future pharmacological) strategies to reduce lung injury during mechanical ventilation will be discussed, and the growing field of research on lung fibrosis development after ARDS will be summarised.
